Growing children.


2 Timothy 1:5 (New Living Translation)

 I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you.

This was one of my verses for the week {doing an awesome study of scripture … find out more, like the “plan” here}. At first I thought I looked up the wrong verse, but I as I SOAP’d it, I began to see the beauty in it. And I got a little intimidated. I admit!


All that my younger kids know about being a Christian they learned from me. At this point in their lives, anyway. Therefore, how I behave in turn teaches them how to be a Christian. Follow me?

My attitudes, my choice of words, my temper, my forgiveness, my peacefulness, my ability to give grace freely, my reactions, my anger, my actions, my willingness to work, my voice when speaking to others, my serving my husband, my choosing of how to spend my time, my Bible reading, my desires, my jealously, my confidence, my meekness …

All of this, it teaches my children about faith. How I live each moment impacts them. If I proclaim to be a Believer … if I talk the talk … then I best be walking the walk.
 My children are watching.

  1. I had the same reaction when I first read that verse yesterday :) But it is quite thought provoking when you dig into it a bit.
